Very Good Children's Musical Version
3 March 2011
This is the one a lot of we X-ers saw in elementary school, with some good humor and songs that STILL linger in the memory. The film begins with a slow sequence to the tune of 'Wake Up! It's a Lovely Day!/It's the perfect day/To take your breath away!' You meet each of the three musketeers, then D'artagnan, and the owl whose presence on the cover of this DVD confirms that this is the film that's bedeviled my memory for years.

There are other songs at key moments--I also remember, 'Freedom and Liberty,' at least it does show the final fighting of the English and French at Le Rochelle, and a VERY sinister animated villain version of Cardinal Richelieu. Milady DeWinter is... chilling. I later went on to read the book, and I still have fond memories of the Michael York live action--but I can STILL hum the songs from this one. That's quite something!
